Donate Using Last Will And Testament - Leave A Legacy

Charitable Bequests

A charitable bequest is simply a distribution from your estate to a charitable organization through your last will and testament. There are different kinds of bequests. For each, you must use very specific language to indicate the precise direction of your assets, and to successfully carry out your final wishes. In any charitable bequest, be sure to name the recipient accurately. A bequest to The Cancer Society might go to national headquarters, when you meant it to go to the affiliate in your community.
last will and testimate

Do you have an estate?

Your estate is the sum of your assets, including property you own, insurance policies, retirement accounts, cash on hand, etc. Wealthy people may have very large estates, but even people who aren't wealthy often have the resources to make a charitable bequest. If every adult in America made a will and included a bequest of just $100, billions of dollars would flow to charitable causes every year.

Below, we have listed some of the more common kinds of bequests, and some bequest language. We always recommend that you carefully review the terms of your will with a professional trained in handling trusts and estates.

General Bequests are legacies left to certain people or causes that come from the general value of the estate, and are made by designating a specific dollar amount, a particular asset or a fixed percentage of your estate to the cause of your choice.

General bequest language:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, the sum of $________(or a description of the specific asset), for the benefit of VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION and its general purposes."

Specific Bequests are made when a particular item or property is bequeathed for a designated purpose. (i.e., instruments bequeathed to the local school district for use in music education; dollar funds to be used in the operation of a school or church.)

Specific bequest language:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, the sum of $_______ (or a description of a specific asset), for the benefit of VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION to be used for the following purpose: FULFILL HERO'S WISHES. If at any time in the judgment of the trustees of VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION it is impossible or impracticable to carry out exactly the designated purpose, they shall determine an alternative purpose closest to the designated purpose."

Residuary Bequests are made when you intend to leave the residue portion of your assets after other terms of the will have been satisfied.

Residuary bequest language:
"All the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal, I give to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, for its general purposes."

Contingency Bequests allow you to leave a portion of your estate to a particular charity if your named beneficiary does not survive you.

Contingency bequest language:
"I devise and bequeath the residue of the property, real and personal and wherever situated, owned by me at my death, to (name of beneficiary), if (she/he) survives me. If (name of beneficiary) does not survive me, I devise and bequeath my residuary estate to VETERAN TICKETS FOUNDATION, for its general purposes."

Without a will, there is no mechanism in place to make a bequest, so here are the steps you should take to make sure your wishes are granted.

  • Make a list of organizations or causes that you would like to support.
  • Make a detailed list of your assets (financial, real estate, vehicles, jewelry, collectibles, musical instruments, etc.)
  • Set up an appointment with your financial analyst or attorney, or planned giving officer at the organization you intend to support. These professionals will help sensitively guide you through the process.

Look at the license plate of the car parked next to you at work. You may find the individual is a Purple Heart recipient or simply a Veteran of the Armed Forces.

Stop by a local recruiting station, nursing home, VFW, or American Legion and simply say "Thanks".

Family Walt Disney World Vacation
I'm Clayton, and in the picture are my wife and my 1-year-old daughter (not pictured our three fur animals)! I am currently deployed, and we want a vacation to Walt Disney World upon my return! My daughter will be 2 soon, and she already loves everything Disney. My wife was classified as an essential medical employee, so we have had a long couple of years between COVID-19, pregnancy, and this deployment. We hope to finally wind down for a bit and enjoy some quality time together as partners and parents. We greatly appreciate every one of you taking the time to read this, and thank you so much for everything in advance!

Disney World Trip
I am a Military Widow. My husband Christopher was KIA in Iraq on Jan.8, 2004. It was right after Xmas & it’s never been the same. But this one will be even more complicated now that his brother won’t be with him. I want my son to be happy this Holiday Season. Me & my boys and I lost their dad in war, and it’s been tough ever since. My oldest son Sean has many disabilities & because of these, he will always have to live at home with me. He watches his brother move on & that’s been hard. This year will be 1st year that it will just be him, me & his youngest brother for Christmas. He doesn’t want to be home because his Dad is gone & his brother isn’t coming home. So we decided to go to Disney World for Christmas. I want my son to be able to have fun for Christmas & not be home depressed. Thank You.

Post Deployment Disney World Vacation Wish
Hello, my name is Estevan. I am a Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 12 years, and we have three kids, ages 5, 7, and 11. My wife and kids are my world; they have sacrificed so much. I joined the Air Force in 2012 to support my family and give my son a life better than my wife and I had growing up. At the time, my oldest son was just 9 months old. I served on active duty for 7 years. During that time, I earned several awards, deployed for 7.5 months, became a Military Working Dog (MWD) handler, and then a MWD trainer. I have served an additional 4 years in the Air National Guard since then while serving my community as a Sheriff's Deputy and a member of the S.W.A.T. team. In the past 11 years, I have been diligent in taking on as many additional training opportunities as possible, attending several Schools out of town in order to sharpen my skills and allow me to serve my community and country well. Even while I've been home, my family has sacrificed countless hours for me, working additional hours to train my K-9, offering support to the K-9 teams I was in charge of training, improving my marksmanship skills, staying after work to help troops, and more. I am currently deployed. I will miss all my kids' birthdays this year, several holidays, and my oldest and youngest starting middle school and Kindergarten. Over the 11 years in the Air Force, I have missed too many birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, and milestones, but my wife and kids have been troopers. They hold down the fort to support me and the mission, even at the expense of time together as a family. We have started saving to take our kids to Disney World (this would be a first for our entire family), and we will hopefully have enough by 2025. I would love to be able to surprise my kids with the opportunity to take them when I get home from my deployment instead. I respectfully ask for help in attaining 5-day Disney World hopper passes for my family of five. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am very thankful for your time and consideration.

Disney World Vacation
I'm Gabriel, and I recently returned from a 7-month deployment in Bulgaria. My wife was 1 month pregnant with our first baby when I left for deployment. So I missed most of the pregnancy but luckily was able to redeploy early for the birth of our baby boy. He is currently 6 weeks old. I would like to take my little family to Disney World to show my wife that she is greatly appreciated for being strong during her pregnancy without me physically being there.

Family Disney world trip
Hello, My name is Joshua. I am currently serving in the Air National Guard. I have been in the military for 12 years, spending 4 Active Duty in the Marine Corps as an Infantry and 8 in the Air National Guard as a Firefighter. I have had three Deployments, two to Okinawa and one to Kuwait. I have a Wife and 3 Kids, ages 22,10 and 4. While I was deployed, our Son enlisted into the Air Force and left for basic in San Antonio before I could see him when I returned. I have not seen or talked to him in about a year. When he gets home, I would like to take a Family vacation, make up for some lost time that we all missed with the deployments and the time apart, and thank them for all the sacrifices they have made to help me with deployments and time away. I’m requesting five 4-day park hopper tickets to Disney World in Florida. We want to leave for the vacation on December 27. Any help would be tremendous. Thank you in advance for all your support.

Post Deployment Disney World Trip
Hello, my name is Jeffrey, and I am currently deployed to the Middle East. I have a 3-year-old son who loves everything Disney and an almost 9-month-old daughter, born a month before I left, but is the happiest little girl in the world. Since this is my first deployment, the whole family has had some major life transitions and stresses simultaneously. We planned on taking the kids to Disney World for my son’s 4th birthday after I got home, but budgeting while gone and trying to plan a fun vacation for the family has been difficult. After hearing about your program, being accepted by the Hero’s Wish program would be a blessing. I appreciate what you’re doing for our service members and would love the opportunity to use your services to bring some happiness to my family. Thank you!
